there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as possible dependent on government, to keep voting democratic, is not succeeding. americans want to stand on their own feet. >> that is the craziest thing i ever heard of my life. you are accusing the president of
in this country, almost one in four american citizens is part of this younger millennial generation. >> woodruff: that fact is not lost on the candidates. last month president obama came to columbus and used the buckeye football stadium in an analogy to describe mitt romney as out of touch. >> under my opponent's tax plan, 106 fans at the game would get an average tax cut of $250,000," and about 100,000 fans would have to pay for it. and by the way, the ones who would get the tax break are the guys in the box seats. >> woodruff: two days earlier, romney was on another ohio college campus. >> you're going to see rising take-home pay again. you're going to have young people that come out of colleges like this that can actually get jobs. today, half the kids coming out of college can't find work, or college-level work. this is... this is not the american experience, the american dream they planned. >> woodruff: whatever the arguments are on and around college campuses, the larger challenge facing the obama camp is the toll the economy has taken on the younger generation. many have come of age seein
american influence that was different from president obama was doing? >> well, i mean, unfortunately for answering the question, my basic thesis there's a tremendous degree of continuity between presidents. we already saw and jessica and i have a running discussion about this. i was going say argument which it's not. >> treatment. >> which began around january 2009. many people have been struck. the nighttimes "new york times" the continue -- any president in my view only changes things, you know, ten degrees one way. ten degrees the other. there will be some issues, obviously, you know, there was no question that romney takes a different view on how deal with russia and you see a different policy toward russia. on iran it's a hard call. one thing we haven't spoken about. maybe you were going get to it. >> we are twenty five minutes in to this. okay since i consider to be a not unreasonable possibility regardless who was in the white house that the united states might wind up whether it was a desire or has no choice in engaging in military action in iran. what is it going to do to th
on american influence that would be really president down president obama? >> my basic thesis is that there's a tremendous agree -- degree of continuity of all presidents. we have already seen, and jessica and i have running discussion about this, which began probably around january 2009, but many people have been struck. "the new york times" rights abroad this, the continuity about obama and bush, for that matter. they only changed things 10 degrees one way or the other. there will be some issues. obviously, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia. on iran, it's harder call, for instance. maybe you're going to get to this eventually, -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. i consider it to be an on unreasonable possibility regardless of who is in the white house that the united states might end up engaging in military action with iran, what will that do to all of these consensuses about spending and whether american people are injected in foreign policy and issues like the defense budget? as issues like that and the ones we do not even know about that mak
to be here today. i extend warm thanks to -- colin powell and javier solana. president obama went on to discuss the waves of change sweeping the arab countries and problems related to the struggle over freedom of expression and religious tolerance. this -- discussing american support for popular uprisings around the world, president obama said we have taken these positions because we believe freedom and self-determination are not unique to one culture. these are not simply american values or western values. they are universal values. even if there will be huge challenges that come with the transition to democracy, i'm convinced altman the government must be for the people and by the people and is more likely to bring about the prosperity and individual opportunity that serves as a basis for peace. the question is, is this the right stance for the united states and europe to take? and are we taking it? what are we actually doing to implement these values? dr. javier solana, i will like to begin by asking you from the point of view of the most senior of european diplomats and states

back today against charges from the obama campaign that he would give wealthy americans a huge tax cut while raising taxes on the middle class. >> i want to bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. but by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money so they can hire more people. my priority is jobs, and i'll make it happen. [applause] >> reporter: and you heard in the first little bit of sound that you played there from governor romney, he said incomes are down, that's reinforced by a new report that came out just a couple of hours ago that shows household incomes declined again in august by 1.1%. overall during president obama's term, they are down 8.2% now. arthel: john, a lot of people think governor romney hurt himself with the 47% comment. how's he trying to battle back from that? >> reporter: yeah, it does look like he did some damage because his negatives are up. so what the romney campaign is doing now is trying to present him as a candidate who, as
. this is half an hour. >> i have the honor to welcome to the united nations his excellency, barack obama, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the
things and do things and have an impact on the american influence that is really different from what president obama was doing? >> unfortunately my basic thesis is there's a tremendous degree of continuity at all times between presidents that we already saw i would say, and jessica and i have a running discussion i was going to say argument, disagreement which has begun i think probably around january of 2009. but i would say that many people have been struck. even "the new york times" rights of the this continuity between obama and george w. bush for that matter. so, any president in my view only changes things 10 degrees one way, 10 degrees the other. there will be some issues. obviously, you know, there's no question that romney takes a different view on how to deal with russia and you probably see a different policy towards russia. on iran is a harder call and one thing we have not spoken about, and i think maybe you were going to get to it eventually -- >> we are only 25 minutes in. >> okay. since i considered it to be not a and unreasonable possibility regardless of who was in
. you have 47 million americans on food stamps. the reality is that the obama campaign can try to paint whatever picture they want to paint. the reality is that americans are not interested in having another four years like the last four years. they're interested in a change, and that's precisely why we believe this election will focus on the health of the economy and will focus on who the better candidate is to lead our economy going toward and it is precisely why we think governor rom in i and congressman ryan will be successful. >> before we let you go, are you in the depths of debate prep? how is that going? ? we are preparing for that debate next week and looking forward to it. president obama is a formidable debater and has a lot of great experience and a wonderful speaker so we'll go in there prepared and i think we feel really good about where we are right now >> nice job managing expectations. look foward to wednesday night. let's get to the cme in chicago and rick santelli and the san telly exchange. surprising facts about bain capital's beneficiaries. >> yes. viewers, listene
to the american people as what it was, an obviously planned terrorist attack on the 11 the anniversary of the september 11th, 2001, attacks, suddenly obama looks like he screwed up. he did. the state department and the administration let down their guard on september of all days. the response was to blame it on the video which was useful to get people to cover the operation. blame it on the video. do not mention the word "december report." insist it wasn't pre-planned. anyone can tell you there were serious ambushes and attacks and obviously heavy weapons. it was obviously pre-planned. >>neil: enough pre-planned for the ambassador himself to worry if his diary for his own safety and the growing dangers around him. can we get our hands on cables to the state department that might haved of that or confirmed that? obviously, he was worried. >>guest: we can get our hands on the cables. after the election. this administration does not have a classic foreign policy or security or military policy or even domestic policy. everything is politics. rebound doesn't have a national security council
"obama"] you know, my opponent is a big believer in top down economics. he thinks that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts for the wealthiest americans, if we get rid of regulations on wall street, then all our problems will be solved and jobs and prosperity will trickle down on all of you, debts will disappear, we will live happily ever after. there is only one problem with that. we tried that in the ticket before i became president. it didn't work. top down economics never works. we don't need to double down on the same trickle-down policies that got us into this mess in the first place. we don't need policies that just help folks at the very top. that is not how the country grows. that is not how we succeed. we succeed when at the middle class gets a bigger, when more people have a chance to get ahead and live up to their god- given potential. far when we very have leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of the victims who don't take responsibility for their lives. let me tell you, i have been to nevada in line. you guys may get tired of me. but as i travel arou
're seeing that reflected not just in president obama, but in the team that supports him. >> yeah. the way i like to put it is that president obama has the appeal of a reluctant warrior, which is what most americans are. if we have to go to war, we will. and he has shown that he will use force when it's necessary, but he's a reluctant warrior. reluctant warrior is still a warrior. other presidents, i think, have been eager warriors -- >> i would add the word "engaged." i think this president understands that in this world you need to be engaged, and he has engaged smartly. >> okay. next i want to introduce michele flournoy, she served as undersecretary of defense for policy from february '09 to february of this year. and prior to her confirmation, she helped lead president obama's transition team at the department of defense. in 2007 she cofounded the organization that doug just referred to, the nonpartisan think tank center for a new american security. republicans in states like virginia, notably, are using the impending sequesters as an issue against their democratic opponents. even though
